Happy August my lovelies!!!
Let’s face it girls, every foundation is different, and some we just favor more.
Let’s have a battle of the foundations!
Our first contestant is Maybelline New York’s dream velvet soft-matte hydrating foundation in the shade Nude 40 !
This lovely little tube comes out easily. It’s spreads smoothly and gives a perfect matte look.
And who doesn’t love that matte look?!
Next up is L’oreal Paris 24hr infallible total cover foundation 305 in the shade natural beige Continue reading
Hello everyone! I know that literally everyone has reviewed these cream lipsticks but I wanted to give you guys my take on them because I do have some pros and cons with this formula!
Promise: Our Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick glides on and sets into a striking matte finish.
- cruelty free!
- Price: $6.99 (bargain)
- matte finish
I do think that these do glide on, they are so opaque and pigmented which I absolutely love and they have a really matte finish so they accomplish the promise! They don’t really dry down all the way, (not a liquid lipstick) and feel a bit sticky if you press your lips together while you wear them. The stickiness slightly bothers me but the formula is comfortable. They are super matte which I absolutely love but they do feel kind of thick on your lips and are not as lightweight and whipped as the formulas that I usually enjoy.
This is the shade Bedtime Flirt and I kind of want to pick up more of these!
- Super matte finish
- opaque and really pigmented
- comfortable formula
- pretty long lasting (except through food)
- cruelty free!
- Thick formula that you can feel on the lips
- does feel slightly sticky
- doesn’t layer well (you shouldn’t need more than one, although touch ups can get a bit sticky)
The only thing I would change about these if I could is to make them a little more lightweight and less sticky. Overall I am willing to overlook it because they are so pigmented and I do like them, especially for a bargain price.
Hi guys! This is my halfway update for my seasonal project pan which will be ending in late september. I have a few makeup items I am attempting to use up and I am excited to share my progress with you guys!
What I have finished:
EOS lip balm – was okay, would not repurchase because it isn’t cruelty free!
Neutrogena Cream Cleanser – this is amazing! Definitely recommend to you guys if you are able to buy it, but it isn’t cruelty free so I won’t repurchase
Hello everyone and welcome back to our blog! I have some products to share with you that I have changed my mind about after using them for a while. Some I disliked and now I absolutely love and some the opposite happened!
1. Tarte Lights Camera Lashes mascara
This used to be a holy grail of mine but now after trying out so many others it just seems meh. Like it gets the job done but I honestly am not reaching for it. After I finish this tube I won’t buy another.
2. Tarte Tartiest mascara
I hated this upon first impression because of how bad it flaked and how it was goopy. After using it for a month it stopped flaking and I figured out how to work with it. Now it is actually my favorite mascara! It gives beautiful volume.
3. Becca Beach tint lip shimmer in the shade Rasberry/Opal
I loved this when I first got it and I thought it was so gorgeous! But as a couple months passed I started liking it less. It feels a little sticky on the lips which I dislike especially because of how expensive this is. Continue reading
Hello my lovelies! I can’t believe July is over!!
During the month of July, I happened to get a lot of E.L.F products, for myself and as birthday gifts.
The first product i got was their Ivory creme concealor stick,
Now the previous liquid concealor stick i got from E.L.F i did not like, I didn’t like how within a week the bottle was pretty much gone. So this time I got a creme stick, personally I find they last much longer. I really love this stick, it covers very well and spreads cleanly.
Next I got the E.L.F lipstick. In the shade of pink
Way back to last summer I got this exact shade from Forever 21 and loved it. This year I got It as a gift. It is the same shade as my lips, so it makes the whole look look natural. Not to mention it keeps my lips hydrated! Continue reading
Hello guys! I have almost made my makeup collection cruelty free and I started picking out which other products I need to use up. I am happy to report that my nail polish is 100% cruelty free, but my skincare and haircare are not there yet! Today I’m going to show you what I have left to use up and it actually isn’t very much which is exciting for me!
Lancome Bi-Facil Makeup remover – This is a deluxe sample and it is almost gone. I have another from Florane (cruelty free) to try next.
Elizabeth Arden Let There Be Light – I found a dupe from ELF that I will buy instead once I finish it, it’s about 3/4 gone!
Hair One Hair Conditioner – This is HG of mine and also a gray area. I couldn’t find evidence that it is cruelty free and I also could not find evidence that it isn’t. Until I’m sure I am going to count it as not cruelty free!
Hi guys! Welcome back to our blog! So this whole past month of July, I have been only using one palette: The Bobbi Brown Beauty Book Palette. It has six eyeshadows and a blush and bronzer so I had plenty to use.
I am happy to say that I actually used this almost everyday for the whole month and I really did enjoy it. The eyeshadows were not bad, the only duds for me were the matte brown transition shade which lacked pigment/was chalky and the silver shade which had a lot of fallout.
My absolute favorite shade was the champagne-pink shimmer (shade name: Blush Gold)! It is stunning and the formula is amazing on that one. I have to find a cruelty free dupe because I need that shade in my collection.
I used the white shade to set my foundation and concealer and it worked fantastically which was actually quite neat to discover!
